A Light In the Black is the final song in Rainbow’s second album, Rising. It concludes the epic story introduced in Stargazer. They can’t find any immediate purpose to their lives, they don’t know what to do with their freedom. Finally, there can be two interpretations about the end of the story. B. Since they were already living under harsh conditions, they finally died shortly after the wizard. The light in the black could symbolize that after all they went through, they managed to find eternal life up in the sky, like some kind of heaven. This is backed up by the fact that the narrator says I found my way back home, to the sky and then he remarks that he can now see the star the wizard wanted to reach, possibly from up close, if he’s really dead.
Only for completionists (0%). The Bonnet-era is a different ball game. I really love "Down to Earth", thinking it is a great transition album. Stuck somewhere between the Dio stuff and that of Turner, it merges the mystery and hardrock of yesterday and the radiofriendly material of Turner in the most splendid of fashions. It's fantastic to hear an early version of "Love's no friend of mine" in the shape of "Ain't A Lot Of Love In The Heart Of Me", alongside great live renditions showcasing the amazing vocal talents of Graham Bonnet

Something's calling me back There's a light in the black Am I ready to go I'm coming home. Breathed the air before Heard the thunder roar Never knew it was for me Always looking down Lost and never found Eyes that looked but not to see All my life it seems Just a crazy dream Reaching for somebody's star Like an open door That you've passed before But you've never had the key. Something's calling me back Like a light in the black Am I ready to go I'm coming home, I'm coming home I'm going back to my home.

Running to 8 minutes, 12 seconds, "A Light In The Black" closes the 1976 Rising album. Originally called "Comin' Home" - the title of a Deep Purple song released the previous year - this blistering uptempo track has a definite Deep Purple Mark II feel to it with Tony Carey sounding much like Jon Lord and of course Ritchie Blackmore sounding like Ritchie Blackmore. This is Rainbow at their very best, the album receiving high accolades all round. More songs from Rainbow. More songs with colors in the title.
